Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's Rain

1 post in this topic

Tobi Tobias's Arts Journal blog is a review of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's Rain

http://www.artsjournal.com/tobias/

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s Rain, performed by her Belgium-based company, Rosas, draws upon defining devices of early postmodern dance—the inventions and innovations of the late 1960s and the 1970s—and gives them a sleek, forceful theatricality.  Indeed, it makes them fit for an opera house—the venue, laden with tradition, on which postmodernism originally turned its back in contempt.  Such a development is both ironic and inevitable—the mainstream is a magnet for the work of its rudest antagonists—and De Keersmaeker’s piece is very handsome indeed.
